Bug#986830: ITP: sscg -- simple SSL certificate generator

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Martin Pitt <mpitt@debian.org>

* Package name    : sscg
  Version         : 2.6.2
  Upstream Author : Stephen Gallagher <sgallagh@redhat.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/sgallagher/sscg/
* License         : GPL-3+ with OpenSSL exception
  Description     :
   sscg is a utility to aid in the creation of more secure "self-signed"
   certificates. The certificates created by this tool are generated in a
   way so as to create a CA certificate that can be safely imported into a
   client machine to trust the service certificate without needing to set
   up a full PKI environment and without exposing the machine to a risk of
   false signatures from the service certificate.

See this blog post for details:

Cockpit's web server makes use of sscg if it is available, as a slightly better
alternative than direct self-signed certificates.

CC'ing upstream author Stephen for questions about the functionality.

I recently sent the Debian packaging to the upstream project, where it will run
in CI for each PR: https://github.com/sgallagher/sscg/pull/22
